Okapis are related to giraffes but are adapted to life in the rain forests of their native land, the Democratic Republic of the Congo. They are solitary and secretive, and little is known of their behavior in the wild.

The okapi is an endangered species threatened by habitat loss and poaching. As of 2014, about 10,000 exist in the wild. Another 176 live in zoos, which serve as breeding centers and provide funding for the Okapi Conservation Project.
